What colors would you use?  I hope you picked up my coloring postcards last week at Montclair Art Museum’s First Thursday. They were given out during Studio Montclair‘s Draw Along.  Here are my postcards again-with color. Thanks for voting for me and enjoy!

Studio Montclair will be using the postcards for publicity.  Call them for your own copy.

The days are shorter, the weather is cooler and orange becomes nature’s favorite color.  It’s mine, too.  What’s yours?

May is National Photography Month

And, it is the perfect time to try photographing something new.

Try taking photos of things that would not be your typical subject.

Try taking photos at an unusual time of the day or from a different height.  A friend once asked if I could shoot from the vantage point of a small dog. This challenge opened my mind to consider radically different viewpoints when photographing.

I hope this inspires you to try something new.  Be sure to let me know.

Visiting Radda in Chianti, Italy

Our first day trip was to the lovely hilltop town of Radda in Chianti in the center of the Chianti region.  Our host explained how safe it was by relating this story: A previous workshop participant lost a camera somewhere in the town.  The next day it was returned by the Policia.  A local resident found the camera, recognized the photos of Borgo San Fedele and knew that it had to belong to a visitor staying there.  You can’t get much safer than that.

We found the perfect bench in a small park overlooking the countryside and painted the fabulous views.  The Church of San Niccolò is in the center of this circular town so we knew exactly where we were at all times. In the middle of the Chianti region, we found many black roosters (found on the seal of Chianti Classico wine) and the most delicious white wine made with the typical Vernacchia grape.

Of course we didn’t paint all the time.  We visited abiti e accessori, a store with home accessories in one room and, in the other, beautiful clothes made with hand painted fabrics made by the artist in the middle of the store.  Other stores featured the food of the region including pici pasta and a tasty olive oil, of course.  And, don’t forget a fabulous lunch.

The size and friendliness of Radda was just perfect for our first adventure.
